An interesting NYT article about smartphones (iPhones, Blackberries and the new Palm Pre) and how, even in these hard economic times, the demand for them continues to increase. From the article:
In today’s recession-racked economy, penny-pinching is a national pastime. But people are still opening their wallets for smartphones.
Sales of BlackBerrys, iPhones and other smartphone models are rising smartly and are projected to increase 25 percent this year, according to Gartner, a research business. Widely anticipated new models like the Palm Pre, which went on sale nationwide on Saturday, will help fuel that growth. Meanwhile, total cellphone sales are expected to fall.
This is changing how people use the internet. There is no doubt about that. How it will impact higher education is still evolving.
I’ll see you on the web!
